With the European release of "New World Order" - the imminent new full-length from Italian progressive occult metal alchemists Void Of Sleep - now just days away, today the band is pleased to unveil an official lyric video for third cut "Slaves Shall Serve."
The band comments: "This track is absolutely the most genuine and in-your-face song of the new record and it brings out our most valuable stoner rock spirit with bombastic riffs and wicked grooves. Lyrically, the song gets in the heart of the concept of the entire album with darkened and occult themes."
A seven-track concept offering thrusting forth a cosmic amalgam of stoned out, progressive sludge rock where epic rhythms melt into bottom heavy doom breakdowns, complex time signatures and psychedelia, "New World Order" was captured by bassist Riccardo Pasini (Ephel Duath, The Secret) at Studio73 in Ravenna, Italy and mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room in Chicago, Illinois.
"New World Order" will be available via Aural Music on CD in Europe this Friday, October 16 and in North America on November 13. The record will be available digitally worldwide on October 18, with vinyl available next year. More...
"New World Order" is the impending seven-track concept album from Italian progressive occult metal conjurors Void Of Sleep.
Set for release next month via Aural Music, the follow-up to 2013's "Tales Between Reality And Madness" (reviewed here) was captured by bassist Riccardo Pasini at Studio73 in Ravenna, Italy and mastered by Collin Jordan at The Boiler Room in Chicago, Illinois.
In advance of its official unveiling, today first single "Hidden Revelations" comes online and can be heard below. Comments the band of the latest number:
"'Hidden Revelations' is the start of the whole story to us, the first song we had composed for the record and lyrically it was at the basis in the concept genesis of 'New World Order.' It represents very well the entire mood of the album; it's aggressive, occult and claustrophobic but melodic and progressive at the same time...in just three words: we love it!" More...
The Italian progressive occult metal visionaries from Void Of Sleep will release their sophomore full-length in Europe on October 16 and in North America on November 13 via Aural Music.
Titled "New World Order," the seven track concept album and follow-up to 2013's "Tales Between Reality And Madness" long player (reviewed here) was captured by bassist Riccardo Pasini (Ephel Duath, The Secret) at Studio73 in Ravenna, Italy and mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room in Chicago, Illinois.
"'New World Order' represents to us a new culmination of our sound," issues of the band of this latest composition. "Now more than ever you can call it visionary, sludgy and progressive. It's an occult, esoteric and wicked metaphor to the modern society as we consider it: with no positive expectations of the future of this world. This album embraces the concept of evil in its purest form. Since the beginning, man has been doomed to consume and enslave and destroy his own kind in an absurd discord to the final extinction."
The "New World Order" album comes shrouded in the arcane cover creation of Simone Bertozzi who relays of the work, "while doing it I experienced the breath of Lucifer on my back, the Illuminati around the corner and reptilians getting ready for my abduction. Coincidence? I think not."

After having all their gear stolen on the road, Nero Di Marte and Void of Sleep have launched a crowd funding campaign to buy new equipment and record a split release. Full details are available right here, and Nero Di Marte comments:
"As some of you may know, on Sunday March 23rd after a show in Rome, Nero di Marte and Void of Sleep were robbed of all their instruments and gear.
"In less than 30 minutes someone broke into our van and was able to take everything. It happened in broad daylight near a police station in Rome, despite there being a massive amount of police forces surveilling the area but, alas, no security cameras.
"Guitars, amps, pedalboards, drums, merchandise and personal belongings… a total amount of 25.000€ was stolen from both bands. They took everything.
"The sad reality of this situation is that without any instruments we cannot continue as a band. We can’t play, rehearse, tour, record a new album.
"It took us years to buy our gear, and to start from absolutely nothing, without any help, means paralyzing anything we could do for a long time or seriously put ourselves into debt beyond what we can afford.
"In the last few days we’ve received hundreds of messages and phone calls from friends and strangers; you’ve amazed us with your support, comprehension and indignation towards what happened.
"You helped us get back on our feet and empower us to immediately react to what happened, and for this we thank you.
"We want to get back to what we know how to do best, play music, and we cannot do it without your help. More...
